OKALOOSA COUNTY: An Illinois man is charged with attempted murder after an Okaloosa Island condominium

security guard says the man tried to drown him in the property’s swimming pool Friday night.

33-year old Seth Beavers of Sterling Illinois, a former Naval rescue swimmer, is currently

being held on no bond in the Okaloosa County Jail in Crestview.

OKaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to condominium property at 1110

Santa Rosa Boulevard on Okaloosa Island around 10:15 Friday night.

The condo’s security guard said Beavers was at the pool after hours. He asked Beavers to

leave but says Beavers instead started a physical altercation, telling the security guard he

would drown him.

The victim says Beavers rolled him into the pool while holding him against his will, hit him

in the head, then pushed him under water, depriving him of oxygen.

The victim, who can not swim, was able to briefly get away. He told OCSO deputies

although he tried to get out of the pool, Beavers struck him again, wrapped his arm around

his neck, and pulled him back into the water, fully submerging his head as if trying to

purposefully drown him.

The victim says he feared he was going to die during the encounter.
